for this is the books are conceived as a history of the united states sort of as told through biographies and i was looking for a woman subject for one of these and in fact i found one but my publisher wouldn't let me do it. can you guess what woman i was looking for and found? eleanor roosevelt. i mean, just the fact that it's a very short list of women who played a large role in american public life on whom i can hang a tale of four or five decades of american history. women have had of course their roles in private life but it is in the nature of private life it usually doesn't survive in the historical record. why did people start saving the letters of eleanor roosevelt? because she was important. do your correspondence save your letters that you write to them and then do they deposit them in the local historical society? well, maybe, and if they do you will become, can i use my words adviseably, here, you will become literally immortal. you will become immortal in letters because future historians will find those letters. they will say ah, that is what life was like at the beginning of the

demonstrated a willingness to tackle long- term debt problem of the united states. i think he is prepared to do that and prepared to push through a plan if we make some amount of progress in this election, but i assume he will be a great second-term president. >> i agree with melody, i think the election will be very close, but i believe the president will be reelected, because i do not think this country wants to go back to the policies being advocated by the mitt romney/paul ryan ticket to a place where we're talking about reducing taxes on middle income people. a place where we're reducing regulation in a way that opens us up to the same abuses that got us into the financial crisis that led to the recession we are still climbing out of. i do not think women want to go back to a place where health care choices is something that is problematic. where our environment is at risk, because we do not have an energy policy that recognize the needs for clean, alternative sources of energy. i do not think the country wants to go back to that place. i do a thing when the president reelected, one of the

as president of the united states. when you are president you can't afford to leave things off the table. to not talk about afghanistan, not talk about iraq, to not talk about medicare, to not talk about social security, it is to basically ask you the american people to vote for you, literally as a blank slate. in the case of governor romney, a blank etch-a-sketch. the problems facing the country are so big -- the american people -- i think the consideration that they will come to is should we take a chance on someone who is a blank slate. compared to the guy that's in office now. >> i will have to leave it there. thank for your time tonight. be sure to catch steve on "the cycle" weekdays at 3:00 p.m. eastern on msnbc. coming up, there he goes again. the marathon man. paul ryan running to new lengths to strength the truth. >> what they are trying to suggest is that i said obama was responsible. that's not what i was saying. read the speech. >> read the speech? sir, we all watched the speech. it is not getting better with age. plus, the first lady's on the first night. how mrs. obama will
